Moment of sweetness serves as a reminder about love which makes you think about your own love life. Its cleverly done so it does not sound like it's preaching.

A haunting halloween.

A Note Below features a lighthouse, a spooked family, a dog and a supernaturally inclined town, at halloween - i hoped it would be good and i wasn't disappointed.

I enjoyed that this story - like A Death Displaced - was also set in Lansin and though not as menacing as its predecessor, it still held intrigue and was unsettling as i was not sure if the 'happenings' might escalate.
The ending is uplifting as the living and the dead started out in apparent conflict and through the resolution of this; end up helping each other find peace and communicate with loved ones better than before.

On a lighter note; i also loved Gavins' angry, old(er) man rant about touch screen phones.... where's book two?

This short story by Andrew Butcher offers everything a mystery/paranormal fanatic could want. The tense, eerie beginning sets up the tone for the rest of the story, and the protagonist, Gavin, is an extremely likeable character. The first chapter creats a spooky atmosphere which enticed me to read on, and I got a good sense of Gavin and Angela's relationship through the dialogue which made the two more relatable. Gavin's dialogue throughout gave me a good image of his character.
The story has a very clever plot and is remarkably written so I could never have the guessed what would happen in the end. Andrew used facts about the island and its history which made Lansin Island seem like a real place and therefore added to the spooky factor as it seems that this story could actually have taken place.
Although I could have read more I think the length of this story is just right cause I was eager to know what was causing the strange things to happen. After reading this I think 'A Death Displaced' is next on my reading list!

This story was an interesting read. The author cleverly avoids describing the appearence of the main character, Gavin, which encourages the reader to use their own imagination. He does not get bogged down in detail, which enables the story to flow nicely. The author proves to be a very creative writer, as I was convinced (until told otherwise!) that the setting for the story was a real place. I also really liked the positive message of the importance of family that the author puts across. The only criticism of this book would be its length. I could have read more!
